Photo Credit: Scott Spitzer Do you want to be a billionaire? That’s a rhetorical question. Of course you do. According to Wealth-X and UBS’ annual study, there are 20 schools in the world which seem to harvest billionaires more so than any others, 16 of which, incidentally, are located in the United States. According to this study, 42 percent of the world’s billionaires earned a bachelor’s degree, 26 percent a master’s degree, 21 percent an MBA, and 11 percent went a PhD from the following schools. Incidentally, the non-American universities include the University of Mumbai, India, the London School of Economics, Lomonosov Moscow State University in Russia and Eth Zurich. Without further ado, it’s time to study up on where you’ll be most likely to become a billionaire. Warning: you will be tested.
